Melting Pot shares some human stories from all over the world though conversations with inspiring and interesting people.
Despite there being so many diverse cultures, languages, physical appearances, geographical boundaries and locations; there is just one commonality binding us altogether and that is the human story. The commonality between these people is passion or a calling and they have dared to make it their personal reality, by following their dreams, some have tried to introduce unknown aspects of their culture to the world, others have simply made it a way of life and then there are yet others who have made a difference and transformed lives. 
Payal has been in awe of most of her guests through her podcasting journey so far and she feels humbled at how they have opened up their hearts and shared their life stories with her which she is then able to bring to listeners from all over the world to enjoy, listen, appreciate, absorb and take away from.

    Omar Masroor is owner and founder of the Aracosia group that serves authentic Afghan cuisine inspired by his roots in The District of Columbia, USA.
    The group has three award-winning Afghan restaurants in the D.C. area.
    Omar is proud to serve up old family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. They use quality ingredients and an array of spices and fresh herbs, Afghan Bistro, Bistro Aracosia and Aracosia McLean have something for everyone's taste.
    Omar believes in providing traditional Afghan hospitality, educating and promoting the food and culture of his people. The three restaurants give the diners an opportunity to get a glimpse of the era in Afghanistan which is now sadly forgotten.
    "The universe speaks to us through its amazing creations. We've become deaf and blind to the beautiful colours and sounds that are constantly being displayed.
    Now I know that a Warrior and Poet resides in every soul. The hard part is to make sure the Warrior in you is always dormant and the Poet to be always singing and dancing"- Omar Masroor

Thakur Bharat ,

Brilliantly Human

Payal’s podcast shows the human angle, being that we are human, it is just wonderful to sit and listen to a conversation between human beings, about real life. Thank you Payal, for doing what you do. Take care and be well. Namaste.

Simple stories of simple people

Delightful podcasts that showcases the interviewer’s passion for travel. Every episode captures modern day migration and the stories of not so extraordinary people in our ordinary life. Payal lends a voice for these people to share their journey and stories with us. When travel becomes a norm again, I hope to visit these wonderful places. I hope to hear more diverse stories of simple ordinary people, their lives and the big changes they have made to those around them.

Follow your heart

Payal brings her love for travel and new experiences to gathering a diverse group of people...all linked together by a deep desire to follow their passions.

Really interesting stories brought to life in conversational style interviews! Look forward to more!
